Volvo has issued a recall for all its fully electric EX30 vehicles, totaling 71,956 units, due to a software malfunction. The glitch causes the speedometer in the center screen to enter test mode upon startup.

This problem affects cars globally and the company announced plans for an over-the-air software update.

The EX30 model, launched in January, became quite popular quickly. By April, it ranked second in Europe among battery-electric vehicles with sales reaching 35,000 units. Volvo confirmed that this software issue is isolated to the EX30 model and no other models are impacted.

Fortunately, there have been no accidents or injuries reported due to this issue. Volvo intends to resolve the defect with a simple software update which will be rolled out over-the-air to all owners of the affected vehicles.
